Finding eBooks You Can Read On Your eReader

A friend of mine owns a Kindle. He wanted to know why some eBooks he downloaded wouldn’t open. The Kindle family of eReaders use AZW or MOBI format, and they’re about the only ones that do (please “click here” to see a comparison chart of the top 10 eReaders). The majority of eReaders use EPUB format. The eBooks my friend downloaded were all in EPUB format and weren’t compatible with his Kindle (just like AZW and MOBI formats aren’t compatible with a most other eReaders, including the Nook).

So what do you do when you see an eBook you want to read, but it’s in the wrong format for your eReader? That’s easy! You convert the eBook’s format to one you can use! You can do that quickly and easily with Calibre!

So what is Calibre?

Another Look At Calibre!

I’ve written about Calibre in the past, but to be honest, I kind of ignored it since my review. Last night I found mention of it on another website and I decided to take another look! All I can say is, “Wow! They’ve evolved!”

One of the coolest things it does is convert almost any ebook into the format that’s compatible with yours! The only exception seems to be those ebooks that are DRM protected.

You can also search for an ebook and it will find all available sources that sell it, inform you if it’s DRM protected, and provide the prices allowing you to choose the least expensive! That saves you money!

Calibre also does what it was first designed to do. It manages your ebook collection.

They call themselves the one stop solution to all your ebooks needs. You can watch a demo and download your free copy of Calibre by clicking here. I think you’ll like it!
